Episode 1: William Waggoner

Born and raised in central Jersey, William Waggoner has been able to turn his self-taught talents for art into a sustainable career path when forays into other vocations proved unfulfilling. His work is notable for its eye-catching compositions and bold use of colors, displaying a Pop Art and abstract style rich with enigmatic imagery and dynamic action. He is currently represented by Dab Art Gallery in Los Angeles, CA, with work available on both Artsy and Singulart. In addition to a fine arts career, William is the owner and creative director of Studio Alpha Design, a commercial arts design agency located in Hunterdon County, New Jersey.
